Numerical methods, grids in atmospheric and oceanic sciences

High-order numerical methods offer the promise of accurately capturing many physical processes and have been shown to efficiently scale to large number of processors. There is a considerable effort in using high-order methods to solve partial differential equations that model physical phenomena in atmospheric and oceanic sciences. In this talk, I would present three different high-order methods and discuss their advantages and disadvantages. These methods are compared by applying to a PDE. Several issues are involved when these methods are applied to a PDE on a sphere for instance, suitability of a grid. I will conclude the talk with two suitable grids on a sphere.
